NELA Food Bank

The Monroe Turkey Trot is an annual race that takes place early Thanksgiving morning to raise money for local charity organizations. Since 2013, the race has grown in size and has become the second largest in the area. This year, all proceeds from the event will be donated to the Northeast Louisiana Food Bank.

The Northeast Louisiana Food Bank is hosting a number of events during National Hunger Awareness Month in order to raise money for providing meals and other services to those less fortunate and educating the public on the problem of hunger in our area. The Food Bank will hold three separate fundraisers throughout September to achieve their goal.
